This alternative opening credit sequence uses alternate music and was played with episodes of the series that had fallen into the public domain. Presumably this replacement music was created to avoid paying royalties for the original theme music. The music in this clip appears to have been lifted from some other place in an episode of the series. Topics: Petticoat Junction, classic TV, comedy, family, alternate, opening credits, public domain

Jack Carson is host, along with his guests Robert Alda and Betty Garrett. Not among the better episodes of this series, with some comedy bits falling flat, but fairly amusing nevertheless.

A later episode of the long-running sitcom (19 February 1966). June Nelson tries to trick David Nelson into going on a trip to Hawaii. A shame that the disc source for this episode put watermarks on it. Also, although the final season was filmed in colour, the circulating copies are black-and-white, which is odd.

The 27 December 1957 episode of "The Army Game", a British sitcom that was produced by Granada Television and aired on ITV. This show wasn't filmed, but was telerecorded ("kinescoped"). I think this may be public domain in the UK, but I might be mistaken on that. I hope it is indeed public domain. Picture and sound quality are far below my usual standards. The encoding is to blame.

An episode of "Stage 7", a dramatic anthology series of the mid-1950s. This episode originally aired 8 May 1955 and stars Angela Lansbury and Hugh O'Brian. While "Stage 7" usually presented straight drama, this episode is more of a comedy, verging on slapstick, and is set in the 1880s.

I probably got the title of the episode wrong. Here is another episode of "The Trouble with Father". In this episode, June starts to get a bit vain, so Stu and his friend decide to take them for hours at a fairground and more hours of dancing at a teen-hangout. All involved quickly regret it all. I alledge this episode runs between 30 seconds and 75 seconds too short. favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, TV, 50s, 50's, 1950s, 1950's, Fifties, Television, Classic Television, Sitcom, Comedy

Popular entertainment from the 1950s. Howdy Doody is running for president, and Mr. X is running against him. There's also comedy provided by some telegrams, more comedy provided by Clarabell the Clown trying to campaign for Mr. X, plus an interesting silent film excerpt, and further comedy provided by the occasionally out-of-focus cameras. But the show aired live, so I'll forgive it. There's also the original commercials for the ever-popular Colgate toothpaste and Rice Krispies (one of them...

An episode of "My Hero", a short-lived US sitcom which aired from 1952 to 1953. This is just my opinion, but I consider this the worst episode of "My Hero" I've seen so far, and one of the worst examples of 1950s television I've seen in my life. That said, Bob Cummings is pleasant as usual. Please note that this episode runs shorter than the typical 1950s sitcom.
